Private QB coach of Sean Clifford, Justin Fields praises duo as top-10 QBs in CFB
Sean Clifford and Justin Fields are both having remarkable seasons, and one coach close to the duo thinks both are among the best quarterbacks in the country.
Quincy Avery is a private QB coach who works with players of all ages. Fields and Clifford are two of the players he works with, and he did not hold back when complimenting the two.
During a recent appearance on the “Take 10 Podcast with Alex Roux,” Avery broke down Saturday’s game between Penn State and Ohio State. Though he admitted Ohio State has a great defense, he also thinks the game will be a bit higher scoring than some may expect.
He points to the play of the young QBs as a reason why even labeling both players as a top-10 QB:
“I imagine it’s going to be a higher scoring game than people think,” said Avery. “I know Ohio State has a great defense, they’ve got Chase Young out there, but you’re going to see two quarterbacks playing at the highest level. To me, those are two of the top 10 QBs in college football right there.”
